Music sensation Bird Barrett is hitting the road, headlining her first national tour after the launch of her second album. Singing to sold-out crowds can mess with a girl’s sense of perspective, though. Luckily, Bird has her older brother, Dylan, and her best friend, Stella, along for the ride to keep her grounded. Then Dylan and Stella pair off as more than friends. Feeling left behind, Bird throws herself completely into her performances, cover shoots, and high-profile interviews. And the more she tries to distract herself with her career, the further she pushes everyone away-including her longtime crush, Adam Dean, who joined the tour as her opener. When Bird breaks down, she’ll need help to find her footing again. But has she pushed everyone too far? In a life like this one, a country girl needs her family and friends-and maybe an old flame-most of all. A foot-stompin’ finale to Alecia Whitaker’s irresistible Wildflower series.

Praise for The Road to You:
"Whitaker's keen ability to write authentically in the voice of Bird offers readers a complete behind-the-scenes look at life in the fast lane of celebrity and success. The author's knowledge of music, especially songwriting, makes the story more authentic, and, as she did in the first novel, Whitaker includes an appended section with complete lyrics and music to Bird's next potential hit song. VERDICT Readers who enjoyed the first novel and those who are fans of country music will cheer Bird along the rocky road to fame and revel in her success."—School Library Journal
Praise for Wildflower:
"Whitaker (The Queen of Kentucky) has a knack for evoking the feel of a live performance--both the atmosphere of the venue and what it's like to play on stage. She's created a winning protagonist in Bird.... Fans of shows like Nashville will fly through this like Bird on her fiddle."—PW
"What separates this novel from others featuring teenage superstars is how grounded Bird is, even as she struggles to process the dramatic changes taking place in her life... Genuine dialogue, a quick pace and a plot that strikes the right balance between realistic and fantastic make for an engaging read...

"Fans of country music will enjoy the contemporary references to well-known stars, and aspiring musicians will appreciate the detailed plotlines involving Bird's work in crafting music and song lyrics... Instant success isn't always this easy, but Wildflower gives the reader a satisfying novel with a cast of characters who are all worthy of making it to the top of the charts."—SLJ
